Renaissance Paintings are beautiful pieces of art.
It seems as if the artists of that time had a uniqueness in their work. And while artists these days do their own things as well, nobody can overstate the importance of these paintings. And over the years many people have tried their best to recreate works of that era or have been inspired by them. This photographer also wanted to pay a sort of tribute to these amazing paintings but couldn’t think of an appropriate way of doing so until a weird idea popped into his head.
You see, he decided to pay homage to these paintings by sort of recreating some of the most famous ones in an auto shop of all places. When we think of Renaissance, we usually think of finery and beautiful silhouettes, and a mechanic shop is the furthest you can have from that. However, surprisingly enough, his work turned out to be quite unique and he has even earned a few awards for these photographs.
